A Visalia woman was convicted on welfare fraud and perjury charges Thursday after she failed to notify the Tulare County Health and Human Services office that she had found a job.
The Tulare County District Attorney's Office said Rebecca Young, 55, first applied for aid in September 2010 when she was unemployed. She soon found a job as a caregiver with a Visalia in-home care business but didn't report it.
Young faces up to four years and eight months in state prison. Her sentencing is scheduled for Aug. 1.
